Nimmitabel Show

I was born in Wagga in 1995 and my family returned to Nimmitabel when I was a baby. I am grand-daughter of Bill & Gaile Fitzgerald of Dalwood, New Line Rd and Kevin and Patricia Green of Doolondondoo, Kybeyan Rd. My parents are Tom and Margo Fitzgerald and I am the sister to Wal, Liz, Will and Jane

I started school at Nimmitabel Public School. In year 5 I moved to St Patricks Parish School Cooma. In year 11 and 12 I chose to go to Yanco Agricultural High School due to the agricultural and equine courses they offered.

After School I worked in shearing sheds for four months as a roustabout until my university degree started in February 2013. I moved to Wagga to study a Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management.

Due to family reasons I moved home in July 2015 and started at Elders as the Farm Supplies Sales Rep and completed the last six months of my degree through distance education and graduated in December 2015.

After I gained a year’s experience with Elders, I commenced work with my families business, Tom Fitzgerald Transport.  With this job I have also started studying through the Cooma University Centre to get my Graduate Certificate in Accountancy and will graduate in September 2018.

I am a keen horse rider and competitor and spend most of my spare time with this hobby. Through this interest I am part of the Nimmitabel Show, Nimmitabel Campdraft and Nimmitabel Pony Club.
